With the explosion of QGIS plugins, people will eventually have so many plugins that it would get hard to find them in the Plugin menu or Plugin toolbar. If the plugin buttons can be arranged in a tabbed (which are based on the category of the plugin) window with buttons arranged in a matrix ( OpenJump Edit window is a good example...see attached pic), it would make it easy for the user to find the plugin of interest.

P.S another idea is to have something similar to the GRASS plugin's Module tree for the plugins

As far as I know this is on the cards to do at some stage. I think Martin had some ideas on this. I was going to prototype a python based plugin tree at some stage but haven't had the chance yet.
